APPLE MUSIC TO BAZZI

Today Bazzi becomes Apple Music’s Up Next artist; Releases highly anticipated album COSMIC

In just a few short months Bazzi has embarked on a meteoric rise to the top of the global Pop charts. Today he officially joins Apple Music’s Up Next class of emerging, global and GRAMMY-nominated artists as he debuts his highly anticipated album, COSMIC, streaming on Apple Music right now.

In an exclusive interview with Beats 1, the 20-year-old singer described the Apple Music honor: “It’s really exciting. Things have been moving really fast. After a year of work and putting everything in order we’re here and it feels really good.” Tune in to Beats 1 right now to hear the full interview.

Additionally, on Friday, May 4, Apple Music will release a special short film featuring Bazzi as well as a brand new acoustic performance video of his hit single “Mine.”

Apple Music’s journey with Bazzi began last summer when the service’s Pop Curator Arjan Timmermans came across Bazzi while browsing Instagram. From there, Apple Music fully championed Bazzi throughout the service from radio and playlists to Beats 1. In October 2017, Apple Music was the first streaming platform to debut “Mine,” which quickly skyrocketed after placement on the popular Today’s Hits and A-List: Pop playlists. By January 2018, Bazzi held the #1 spot across all Apple Music Pop playlists.

“Bazzi’s fine sense of melody and honest storytelling capture a singular, genre-defying vision that is truly one of a kind,” said Timmermans. “He is without a doubt one of the biggest and most important new pop artists to emerge in 2018.”

This spring Bazzi will join Camilla Cabello as a special guest on the singer’s sold-out Never Be The Same Tour.

“When I first listened to ‘Mine’, it stood out from everything that was out- it sounded so honest and original and coming straight from his heart,” Cabello said. “I listened to all of his songs after that and was hooked! I think he has such an original style and it sounds so effortless for him. I think he’s a breath of fresh air in pop music and it’s been so amazing to introduce him to my fans on tour.”

Artist statement

I believe to express my vision of this splendor-decadent world that witnesses our existence, to try to move in the emotion of the viewer, to make him see inside yes; by the right and the reverse of the same glove of what is and exists and of what is not and also exists. Like the dream inside the eye and the outside eye. Like the truth and vertigo of the depth of the fractal-cosmic spiral. As a picture, as truth, as the line that springs from my pen. Creating images and sculptures gives meaning to my existence and being me from the inside-out, so I can communicate with others. I am an insatiable explorer of the plastic techniques that I am encountering in my path, such as painting, watercolor, engraving, sculpture, design, etc. My search in these different lands has the same objective: to find the voice that is capable of taking out this animal-human being, who is thronging in my heart. The fine perfume of the flower of my spirit.

Biography

I remember as a child drawing horses and birds obsessively. The representation of images has always seemed to me as a matter that holds great power, as if in representing an object or being, somehow one was made with his skill, with his unique quality. I have always been surrounded by art. My father, in his poetic dimension, attracted artists from all disciplines to the house to share his presence and talent, some of them had a great impact on me. There was a very special one that made me the honor of taking me as a disciple for a short but unforgettable time: The great teacher Rodolfo Zanabria (who in peace rides in infinity with his maidens with long hair and beautiful faces). From him, I learned that the road is long and if you know how to walk you will reach the Magical Domain. Destiny had the willingness to be a Mexican-Catalan artist, spiritually and vitally grown and split between two ways of being, thinking and feeling. This has allowed me to exhibit and share my work on both sides of the Atlantic since my debut on the plastic scene, until today.
